Mascara -Laura Mercier - Thickening & Building mascara
kmarie 8/31/2003 12:32:00 PM
This is just an O.K. mascara for me. It did thicken my lashes but didn't lengthen very well. It wore well with no flaking or smudging and I found it easy to apply with no clumps. I still prefer less expensive Maybelline Great Lash over this and won't be re-purchasing.
This is a great,thick cream. Absorbs well. I'm pretty oily so I use this at night in the warmer months. Makes a huge difference on the lines around my 40 something eyes. I've given up on trying "wrinkle" creams and will stick with this.
Got a pedi with this color today and everyone in the salon wanted to know what it was! Gorgeous medium pinkish red with lots of different,fine, sparkles,not glitter. Looks outstanding in sunlight!
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Blackberry Musk Shea Souffle

Love this one! Very rich and moisturizing yet light weight and absorbs beautifully. Scent is wonderful,the blackberry is very true and the musk cuts the sweetness just enough.
I've been wearing this in Wheat for over a week now and love it! Keeps my eyeliner in place all day even in this summers heat and humidity. I rarely wear e/s since getting this as it adds just enough color for me. I'll probably switch to the lighter shade,Linen,for winter.

This is a wonderful product. My hair is thick,dry,and curly. I spray this on my wet hair,comb through,add a touch of gel,scrunch,and my hair is soft,shiny,full of body,and frizz-less. A real plus is it contains no "icones". Everyone should give this a try!

I usually don't care for BBW products but really love the scent,texture,and results of this cream. Very soft,vanilla-y shea scent,not too strong. Absorbs beautifully and really softens my skin.
Lotions/ Creams -Kiehls - Intensive Treatment &Moisturizer

Love this stuff! I first tried it when it was in the Nordies anniv. set and have ordered the full size already. I rub it into my feet and elbows every night and the results are amazing!
I'm commenting about the shade in "Snap". Most natural,flushed,pinky-brown blush I've ever tried. Lasts all day on my oily,summer skin without fading.
I used to swear by the FF shea butter line till I tried this. A fraction of the cost,choice of scent,and great results;what more could you ask for?!

I'm thick,dry,and curly and this stuff is fabulous! I use it with heat for about 20-30 min. and my hair is soft,shiny,and full of body. Like the jar packaging cause you can use every last drop!
Not only does this rival the FF shea line in results but the scent is wonderful! Will 100% be buying again!
Cleansers -Lancome - Gel Clarté Foaming Cleansing Gel

I've always had what I call "extreme" combo skin. Very oily areas and very dry areas. I received a bonus size GWP of this cleanser and after useing it for just a few day I saw a remarkable difference in my skin. I know now,after 40-odd years, what it must be like to have "normal" skin! I must agree with the other reviewers that the packaging could be improved. Very leaky. A small price to pay for comfortable,attractive skin! 11/10/03 Picked up L'Oreal's Ideal Balance Foaming Gel Cleanser at the drugstore and it works just as well as the gel clarte. Packaging is much better and it's only $6.99. I did a full review in the proper category.
This is the best eyeliner in the universe! Great color choices,stays put,so simple to achieve a perfect line!
Best ever! My favorite thing to do with this light weight gel is to scruch it through my hair on a non-shampoo day.It revives the curl ,adds shine and is never sticky or stiff!
